30. We consider that no noteworthy environmental impact occurs during the use of most of our products.
31. Energy consumption (electricity and fuel).

32. Generation of air pollutants (CO2, NOx, SO2, particles).

33. Water consumption.

34.. Generation of spills in the water and/or ground, affecting the flora, fauna and hydrobiological organisms.

35. Generation of waste.

NOTE: The metals used in producing our connectors (copper, aluminium, tin and steel)
are fully recyclable materials, do not lose their properties, and recycling them manages to save 95% of the energy which is needed to produce them based on their minerals.

Actions to reduce some aspects:

To the extent possible, SBI takes actions aimed at reducing negative aspects through:

18. Consumption of raw materials.
19. Consumption of auxiliary products: oils, plastics, cardboard, wood, etc.
A. While designing our products, we consider the environmental aspects inherent to the product being designed.
6, 15, 27 Generation of CO2 emissions in the air.
7, 16, 28 Energy consumption (fuel).8, 18, 29 Generation of waste due to the packaging material used
B. Hiring transport professional committed to protecting the environment (EURO5, EURO6).
C. Minimising the use of packaging and/or promoting the use of better recyclable materials (wood, cardboard).
6, 15, 27. Generation of CO2 emissions in the air.

7, 16, 28 Energy consumption (fuel).
8, 17, 29 Generation of waste due to the packaging material used.

20. Generation of CO2 emissions in the air, due transporting products, employee travel, etc.
21. Electricity and natural gas consumption.

22. Generation of waste.

23. Water consumption.

24. Generation of spills in the water and/or ground.

25. Generation of waste.

26. Generation of noise in the factory.

D. Follow-up and measurement of our carbon footprint due to quality issues with our products.
